UK PM May wins vote, parliament rejects staying in European Economic Area
Prime Minister Theresa May won a vote in parliament on Wednesday that threw out a proposal which would have forced the government to negotiate staying in the European Economic Area, meaning it would participate in the European Union`s single market.
The House of Commons voted 327 to 126 to reject the proposed amendment by the upper house of parliament to the government`s key Brexit blueprint that will sever legal ties with the EU.
